Introducing XRP Ledger (rippled) version 1.3.1

Ripple has released version 1.3.1 of rippled, the reference implementation of the core XRP Ledger protocol. To learn more about how to build and run a rippled server, see Manage the Rippled Server.

This release supersedes version 1.3.0. Version 1.3.1 addresses deadlock conditions reported by some users late in the release cycle for 1.3.0.

Installing or Updating rippled

The installation instructions on supported platforms have changed for rippled 1.3.x.

Summary of Changes

The rippled 1.3.1 release introduces several new features and overall improvements to the codebase, including the fixMasterKeyAsRegularKey amendment, code to adjust the timing of the consensus process and support for decentralized validator domain verification. The release also includes miscellaneous improvements including in the transaction censorship detection code, transaction validation code, manifest parsing code, config file parsing code, log file rotation code, and in the build, continuous integration, testing and package building pipelines.

New and Updated Features

  • The fixMasterKeyAsRegularKey amendment which, if enabled, will correct a technical flaw that allowed setting an account's regular key to the account's master key.
  • Code that allows validators to adjust the timing of the consensus process in near-real-time to account for connection delays.
  • Support for decentralized validator domain verification by adding support for a "domain" field in manifests.

Bug Fixes

  • Improve ledger trie ancestry tracking to reduce unnecessary error messages.
  • More efficient detection of dry paths in the payment engine. Although not a transaction-breaking change, this should reduces spurious error messages in the log files.
  • Improved handling of deadlock conditions.

Test Net

This release is currently live on the XRP Ledger Test Net, with the fixMasterKeyAsRegularKey amendment active. To connect your server to the test net, please upgrade to version 1.3.1 immediately.


On supported platforms, see the instructions on updating rippled.
